After graduating from a Civil Engineering / Commerce dual degree and working in project management, I decided to try my hand at coding. Having always been passionate about building and creating new things, I took a web development course at General Assembly. I've been hooked onto coding and its joys and woes ever since.
I am currently most interested in working with and learning more about React.js and Node.js. In my spare time, I enjoy games, trying different foods and admiring anything well designed.

My first utility app I've ever used was TripView on the Apple iPod Touch. To this day I still find it very useful despite having so many alternatives. For my final project at General Assembly, I decided to take inspiration from it and make a trip planner that allows users to save their favourite trips.
This website is the first project I made using React for the front-end and Node.js as the back-end. It sports JSON Web Tokens (JWT) for user authentication and the Google Maps API to geographically display trip routes. The TfNSW Trip PLanner API returns a lot of data that is diplayed on the React front end.
"How Do You Doodle?" was created as a pair group project. We used web sockets to allow two players to play a game of Pictionary ... but with a twist! Players can use the Leap Motion to draw with your hands or the mouse cursor.
My focus for this project was the drawing aspects of the web app using the
<canvas> element and the Leap Motion drawing logic which was connected to the web sockets to send to the guesser's side.
I wanted to create a website related to food to fulfill my foodie desires. Using the Good Food Guide's Three Hatted restaurants in Sydney, I created a restaurant review site with a Twitter-like feed. I used Ruby on Rails to create the back-end and it was a joy to work with.
